Google - ing for Lascaux Fixativ turned up a link to Stephen Livick's site
where he has photographs of a coating machine.

Scroll down to the middle of the page. I'm not sure where one would purchase
a MicroFoam roller but the rest of the device seems pretty simple, although
it isn't clear to me how one gets the leading edge of the print to feed
under the roller.

Perhaps this could be the basis of a method to do gelatin sizing.
